Default g15 an bios..?

So I use a logitech g15 as a keyboard, and it doesnt boot up until I reach the desktop, so uhh do I have to find another keyboard and switch it out when I want to get into my bios?

I've had this problem before, it was fixed by simply resetting my BIOS. What mobo do you have and do you know how to reset it?

OK, I don't know about the jumpers on that, so just remove your BIOS battery:


Remove it and then leave it for about 10min before putting it back in. The BIOS will have reset.

You have to have your computer unplugged while doing this however.

If that doesn't work, check in your bios for something to enable a usb keyboard and mouse. When I first got my DFI board my usb keyboard wouldn't work because I needed to enable this first, which is lame because you need a ps/2 keyboard to get to the bios, pretty dumb thing, but worth a check.

The same thing happened to me when I had bluetooth keyboard and mouse. They don't work until the OS is loaded because thats when the drivers load for it.
